European Commission President Ursula Von Der Leyen confirmed this afternoon that trade talks will continue next week to strike a trade deal. Tom Swarbrick was joined by leading political figures in anticipation of the announcement, and to react to the announcement.

Former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern insisted it was the right decision to extend talks, noting that a no-deal would be catastrophic for the UK economy.

UK trade adviser and former Australian PM Tony Abbott told Tom Swarbrick that if a trade deal isn't reached, it would entirely be the fault of the EU, not the UK.

Former Australian Prime Minister feared that a no-deal Brexit would be not only bad for the UK, but bad for the west as a whole.
